Abstract

Six organosilane dicarboxylic acids were used in the synthesis of conventional semi-drying oil based polyesters. Most of the organosilane modified coatings had appreciably lower viscosity than the non-silane control formulation even though the molecular weights were similar, and the non-volatile content was identical. This allows for reductions in volatile organic components and thus the formulation of high solids coatings, The organosilane modified coatings possessed improved drying characteristics, impact resistance, flexibility, and hardness without loss in adhesion.
